spectacular mail

Pickled banana peppers? Yes please. Thanks Andrea! We better get your seeds in the mail ASAP!

I know exactly what we are going to do with these. Pineapple and banana pepper pizza! You see, once upon a time when Jess and I were courting, we ordered pizza together for the very first time. Somehow we settled on pineapple and peperoncini, and it became Our Pizza. The Internet tells me that banana peppers are in the same family, only sweeter and milder. I really want to grow peperoncinis and banana peppers this year, but I feel like our peppers didn’t like the PNW weather last year even though it was an extra warm & sunny season for us. Jess keeps reminding me that our monster tomatoes overshadowed everything, though, and it seems really appropriate for a family with a 13 year-old eating machine to have a dedicated pizza garden.

      I feel like our pizza garden will be sorely lacking in pineapples, but that just isn’t going to happen in Olympia. I have killed lots of basil myself over the years, always on hot days. I have to keep growing it, though, because I can’t make pesto tofu spread without it.
